Finally, the way real estate should be.

Homie co-founder and CFO, Mike Peregrina, says he started the disruptive real estate business because of the pain points he experienced with his own endeavors in real estate in 2008.

"I woke up one day and thought, this has to be different, this should be different. Why is it done this way? There are so many misaligned incentives. The fees are super high. I think the most important thing I came away with was that the customer is not at the center of that transaction. I really felt that it was my responsibility to fix it."

In March of 2016, Peregrina did just that. He partnered up with Johnny Hanna (CEO) and Mike Trianfo (CTO) and launched Homie. Homie became the #1 broker in the state of Utah in just 18 short months and entered the Greater Phoenix market in 2018.

"We take a tech-enabled approach coupled with licensed real estate professionals. We believe that end-to-end solution makes for a much better customer experience."

In the crowded real estate space, how does Homie do things differently?
